So, I have 1 that is ready, hatched 18 hrs ago. But I can't take it out cause others keep pipping, but it is running through the bator like a psycho knocking the eggs that haven't hatched yet all over the place, and pecking the new chicks that haven't fluffed yet. Idk what to do. If I open it, it'll kill the 2 pipped right? But if I don't, will the crazy chick kill them knocking them around everywhere??

Opening the incubator quickly to remove the chick won't kill the pipped chicks. So do it quickly and get the humidity up again to where it should be. I found putting a piece of wet toilet paper or kitchen roll in the incubator bumps the humidity up very quick, if needed.
